, the unemployment rate rose to 7.9%. 47 million people are on food stamps. our economy is still on life support. and our country is $16 trillion in debt. we cannot afford four more years like the last four years, but that is exactly what president obama is offering. instead of developing a plan to address our serious challenges, his campaign is focused on phony issues. and instead of thinking big, they have wound up looking small. the question of this election comes down to this -- do you want more of the same or do you want real change? president obama promised change, but he could not deliver it. i promise change, and i have a record of achieving it. we need a real turnaround if we are going to get our economy growing and get americans working again. and i have led that kind of effort many times before. during my 25 years in business, i helped people turn their dreams into success stories. together, we built names like staples, bright horizons, and the sports authority. and helped create over 100,000 jobs. when i became governor of massachusetts, the economy was in bad shape and our budget wa
, to big an economy. the government can effect the direction of developments not the degree. >> the medication isn't that much stronger. i mean, you rule out protectionism, trade wars with china that kind of stuff which a lot of people reach to as a cure what's in the disease. >> yes. >> you're obviously strongly in favor of a marshall plan for middle class skills. community colleges. >> absolutely. and i think we can do some pretty radical things in education and training. you know, i don't see why education should be -- should cost -- why higher education should cost any american more than a nominal amount. i think that we can give tuition-free scholarships to everyone who attends public schools, public universities. and we have great public universities in america. and it would be a matter of rechanneling the student aid we now provide into this. and it would take it away from the private universities. i am saying look i'm a product of private universities but as a matter of public policy the distribution of money between the private and public sector in education i think
. our economy is hurting. our national debt is exploding. and the president's policies are making things worse. americans deserve leaders that can keep their promises and will not let up until our future is secure in our economy is strong. that is why i am supporting mitt romney, and is why i am asking for the support of missouri's second congressional district. as a first-time candidate, i do a lot of listening. for all of the fear that i hear out there, the one thing that i hear most often is we can do better. it is what our parents taught us. i remember watching mind twill morning, noon, and at night. i saw my father deal with every take the government through his way, whether it had to do with the signs on the front of the building or the prices on the showroom floor. he knew that he could do better if government would just get out of the way it and stay out of the way. and he was right. when we get government off the backs of our job creators, small businesses have a better chance of thriving. and when small businesses thrive, so does our economy. that is why instead of raising taxe
said heed fix the economy and it remains broken. and he said heed address the energy crisis in america yet he wouldn't approve the keystone pipeline. knows why in michigan we what we need to do next tuesday. four years ago we trailed in michigan by 17%. 8 years ago by 5%. [applause] real clear politics has the average of all polls at less than 4% which is within the margin of area. which means all of the thousands of phone calls and door knocks all of you have made will make this a dead heat and put the victory in our court on election day. [applause] you know that one day on a saturday 250,000 likely voters were contacted, more than any state in america right here in michigan. [applause] so i say to you, do not rest, do not think for a moment we're ahead. we got to protect our country by putting mitt romney in the white house. [applause] we got to protect our country by making pete the next united states senator for michigan. we got to make sure that we keep our state house republican like john walsh in the white house. [applause] but most of all, our supreme court -- say it with me,
on jobs and the economy, which is this big kind of darker issue that the country is facing right now and it's worrying people a lot. and so the idea that he can talk about things like, you know, the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate where he talked about his destroyer to hire a lot of women, that's kind -- it's not helping him, and i think that's reflected in the poll numbers, because you're seeing right now, romney is it tied or seems to have kind of a momentum, i guess, moving into the final week and that's what pollsters are saying. i think that democrats feel that this will help, particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority of the electorate, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away some things that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party electorate, which in a very close election, can be really critical. >> susan of the washington examiner, neil of roll call, thank you both for being with us on news make
,000 in the last two months. we are going in the wrong direction. the economy was supposed to be growing twice as fast today. if only we had passed his plan. guess what? the obama economic agenda failed not because it was stopped. failed because it was passed. he came into congress with full control of washington. he had the house and the senate and the white house. and he passed his agenda. he passed his stimulus plan with all of the barn and the spending. it failed to create the jobs they said it would. then he turned his attention for a year and a half to have the government takeover of health care. then he turned his attention to an energy policy where you try to get a new national energy tax on all of our consumption. he did not get that one through the senate. he got it through the house. then he started regulating. if you are a manufacturer, or a small business, what you see coming from washington? you see more regulation, more red tape. the promise of higher taxes. you see a government spending money it does not have, barring beyond its means, barring from china to fund its government.
